Visual Arts at Hazel Wolf K-8
In Visual Arts for grades K-5, beginning students establish fluency with the Elements of Art (line, shape, form, value, color, texture, space) and Principles of Design (unity, variety, contrast, movement, proportion, balance, rhythm) by communicating their unique and diverse voices, identities, ideas, and mood through the creation of a variety of art projects with different mediums may include pencil, colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, paint, printmaking and clay and mixed media.
K-5 art focuses on the creative process rather than product so that students build artistic skills and techniques while engaging in project-based learning. Students develop and refine a range of artistic techniques and learn to clean up and use materials safely.

K-5 Art Supply List
Here is a suggested basic art supply list for K-2.
I have adapted my curriculum so students can do art at home with minimal supplies, however, these basics will be useful for upcoming projects.
- Watercolor paint- Pan Watercolors are fine. Crayola or Prang (all the same). Most come with a brush. No need to get expensive!
- Black Marker (waterproof thick and/or thin “Sharpie” or any other brand).
- Color Pencils or crayons
- Glue stick or white glue
- Pencil / Eraser
- Recycled plastic container for water when painting
- Construction paper
Optional additional supplies:

Any random found objects for artmaking (buttons, wood blocks, wire, fabric scraps etc.,)
